My husband and I chose to have our wedding reception at Batemans..... and what a fabulous choice that was!!

The venue itself has so much character- with the thousands (I literally mean thousands) of bottles on display, to the old mill and artefacts room. All of the different parts of the visitor centre was available for us to use on the evening of the wedding.

The food was amazing- the more we ate, the more they brought out! There wasn't one person who didn't enjoy their meal. When it came to choose the meal we could have ANYTHING that we wanted. Julie was brilliant when it came to creating our menu.

The room looked absolutely stunning- Batemans provided everything! A beer barrel for a cake stand and a huge variety of things for table centres and everything else we needed.

We couldn't have wished for better service from the front of house team- Dave was an absolute star from when we went to look initially until it was time to pick the things up the day after!

Everything about our dream day was fabulous and this couldn't have been achieved without ALL of the staff at Batemans!

A wonderful alternative venue for a wedding. The Staff were accommodating and did everything possible to ensure the couples day ran as planned. The atmosphere was relaxed and the day flowed. Even the DJ moved outside with the guests to ensure everyone could enjoy the sunshine

Fantastic wedding
Visited Bateman’s Brewery for a friend’s wedding in June. Absolutely stunning place. We travelled with 2 young children who were entertained with the outdoor games on offer. Beautiful setting, the sun was shining. The staff were extremely helpful with the smallest things (plasters for my daughter’s blisters, gravy for my husband’s food etc). Nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended. The wedding was amazing. Thanks to all involved in making it such an amazing day.

What a fantastic venue for our wedding reception, from start to finish nothing was too much trouble. We can’t thank all the staff enough, they went above and beyond and fulfilled all of our expectations. Everything from the fully dressed marque, a tour of the brewery, the food, the service, all of it perfection, we even had own personalised beer pump! Anyone looking for somewhere to hold a celebration, whether it be a wedding, engagement, anniversary or birthday this is definitely the place.

Delighted all went so well for your wedding in August 2015, thank you for choosing us as your venue for your big day and your comments. Hopefully you will be able to come back to the VC before Dave and Judy retire - maybe your 2nd wedding anniversary.

We offer a number of different packages to suit your needs and have a number of quirks to our offer as a result of being a working brewery - whether that be your own beer for the day, brewery tours for your guests or a wide range of interesting and unique locations for your wedding photography. We'd recommend you coming to visit to see for yourselves what a hidden gem we have here in rural Lincolnshire. The team and I look forward to meeting you to discuss the requirements for your special day. The first pint is on us!
